It’s kind of like ice hockey, but you’re outside, said Eiko Eby, president of Nanaimo Field Hockey, and on a beautiful spring day, she had a point.

The association ended its 2014-15 season Sunday with a friendly game against Comox at Merle Logan Field.

It was a good year, said Eby. A combined Nanaimo-Comox team dubbed Nanaimox placed first in the masters division at the Vancouver International Field Hockey Tournament last month, and Nanaimo also won an indoor tournament in the Comox Valley in February.

The league is looking for more players for next fall for weekly pickup games.

“We’ll take people young and old, male, female, and any skill level … no experience necessary,” Eby said. “Right now we’ve got some Dover Bay high school kids, we’ve got some people who have played at a high level, and men and women.”
